Stirling Prize winner 2000

Bold, colourful building with learning pods inside. Primary external material is pre-patinated copper. The building sits up over a square using angled columns.

Peckham Library architect : Will Alsop

The exterior is clad with pre-patinated copper. The Stirling prize judges were impressed with the building’s approach. Alsop has taken the plan footprint of a conventional library and elevated it to create a public space beneath the building and to remove the quiet reading space from street level noise. The remaining, supporting buildings on the ground and 1st floors house the information and media centre. The Library opened to the public on March 8, 2000.
